I was kind of amazed at my gas milage this last weekend … Ginny and I went down state to visit my niece Melissa and we took our bikes (didn’t end up riding, unforunately).
These days I average about 32.5 mpg. With the bikes on the rack in the back of the Escape, we got 27 mpg.
I’m not sure if the reduction in performance was due to the extra weight, the shift in balance, or just extra drag created by the bikes.
I converted Jon to WordPress!
WordPress’s domination of the world progresses.
I’ve always thought that Leonard Nimoy and I had a fair bit in common … and I can add another item to the list …
- He was raised Jewish, but seems to have lost religion … check
- He’s a photographer … I’m a shutter bug
- He’s a great actor … I’m … well … ok, maybe not so much in that area
- And now it appears that he supports Barack Obama for president!
Ginny pointed me to the latest “In Character” piece on NRP that highlights Mr. Spock. Pretty cool article … although I have to wait another hour to actually hear it.
